Techsters, ’Dogs halted; Grambling men stopped
Kevi Luper scored 28 points to lead four players in double figures as Oral Roberts defeated Louisiana Tech 92-71 before 1,215 fans at the Mabee Center Saturday afternoon.
Oral Roberts (4-0) shot 58 percent (23-40) from the field in the second half to break open a 38-38 halftime score as the Golden Eagles defeated the Lady Techsters for the first time in the series seven-game history.
Tech (0-2) got off to a strong start building as much as a 10-point first half lead at 33-23 on a Whitney Jones three-pointer with 5:39 to play. However, the Golden Eagles hit 6-of-10 field goals down the stretch and Savanna Buck’s layup off an inbounds play at the buzzer sent the two teams into the locker room tied at 38-38.
